My Top 7 Best Selling Crochet Items at Craft Fairs
I like to sell my crochet items I make at craft fairs to help gain exposure for SouthPaw Stitchery & to supplement online sales. With my health issues I can’t do a lot but I try for at least once a month from Fall to Winter. I also do a show in late February that allows me to sell Spring and Summer crochet items.
When I first started selling at craft fairs & craft shows, I didn’t know what to expect or what items would be popular. It took some trial and error but I now know mostly what sells best & what doesn’t.
7 Best Selling Crochet Items at Craft Fairs
- Fingerless Gloves – Fingerless gloves are very popular at craft fairs in our Pennsylvania area. I always make sure I keep extra sets made because they are sure to be a big seller.
- Dishtowels, Dishcloths, Washcloths, etc. – Always popular items any time of the year are the kitchen & bath cloths & towels. These are normally the less expensive items I have at my stands but they really sell.
- Boot Cuffs – Boot cuffs, like fingerless gloves, are very popular in our area. I try to make matching sets with the same pattern stitch for boot cuffs & fingerless gloves. It can be an upsale for you – especially around the holidays.
- Coffee Cozies & Travel Mug Cozies – I sell these like crazy especially around the holidays. I have had customers buy them for their entire office staff. They are less expensive items but made in quantity it adds up.
5. Scarfs/Cowls – I try to have a nice variety of different scarves & cowls available at craft fairs to meet the needs of different customers. Buttoned scarves/cowls are very popular. Traditional neck scarves are still a staple to have on hand as well.
6. Hats – I sell a lot of hats at craft fairs, mostly beanie hats & slouch hats for women & girls. This is another item that I try to pair with scarves & cowls with the same pattern stitch. Makes a great upsale item!
7. Home Decor Items – Pillows, placemats, mazon jar covers, coasters….I sell these items well at most craft fairs. I make matching pillows & mason jar covers; matching placemats & coasters (again as an upsale).
